Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-01-25 08:10:03 EST
*** This bug has been split off bug 146102 ***

------- Original comment by Mark J. Cox (Security Response Team) on 2005.01.25
08:07 -------

The moxa char driver is missing a CAP_SYS_RAWIO check which could allow a local
user the ability to do things like replace the firmware.  This is already fixed
in 2.4-bk and in 2.6.10-ac7 from Alan Cox (although it's ommitted from 2.6.10-ac10).

Patch available:
Comment 1 Jim Paradis 2005-06-29 18:08:52 EDT
A fix for this has been committed to the RHEL2.1 source tree for inclusion in
the next security errata.
